Xaeraz hugs the "Sumikube" - the official BrickFair 2012 mascot. Consisting of a Companion Cube Plushie with a hat and huge sunglasses, it was a big hit at the tables, especially during the public hours.
The Sumikube sits amongst my MOCs.
Zatth poses with the Sumikube.
When Avohkah Tamer showed up, I just had to stick my panda/fez/shades combo on him. I have pictures of others doing this, but AT's was probably the best.
On the second day, we ran into -Windrider- as we were perusing the other tables. So what did we do?
IMPROMPTU HATPILE, THAT'S WHAT
Xaeraz sticks his head into the camera. This is one of the most disturbing images ever.
Windeh is sexeh with two hats
On the third day, Black Six grabbed my fez and donned it, rightly proclaiming that they are cool.
MOCs, MOCs everywhere ...
HEY BFA, WE DIDN'T SCREW IT UP THIS TIME
On the last day, the King of All Hatpiles was created. I'm not sure how many I was balancing, but it was awesome.
GROUP SHOT (after I convinced ChocolateFrogs to aim the camera right-side up)
Dinner at Longhorn Steakhouse. We tried in vain to get a good group shot but none of them really turned out. In this one, Avohkah Tamer is a blur and only half of Spink's head can be seen.
In this one, everyone's a tad blurry and Sisen is staring at something that is most definitely not the camera. Also, Spink is pulling the Steve Jobs face.
LOOT, GLORIOUS LOOT
All of the teal. ALL OF IT.
As one of the final steps in my quest for reorganization and restructuring of this blog, I have reformed the old "Bring Back Teal Club" into a new club: The Unused Colors Society. The mission of the UCS is to promote the use of underutilized and/or discontinued LEGO colors, such as teal, old purple, or metallic blue.
All of the 130 members of the old BBTC are automatically members of the UCS - and anyone who wishes to join can do so in this entry!
Not tonight, however.
In no particular order:
- I apparently talk in Palatino
- Papyrus is worse than Comic Sans
- Hat towers are cool
- Zatth's GIFs will be hilarious when I download/convert them
- He is the human GIF
- Ballom came back during the dreaded PUBLIC HOURS from the vendors and showed us a bag full of cool parts and rare '01 masks. I immediately asked him where he got it and he told me - apparently one of the vendors had refilled their gigantic BIONICLE tub. So Daiker, Cholie, and I sliced through the crowd and got more delicious loot
- Meiko gave me some teal parts
- Meiko is pretty cool, though he's quite literally the human troll. He kept trying to steal my BZP Staff brick off my badge
- I kept trying to think of classical music jokes when I was around Windrider, but whenever I got near him my mind suddenly went blank
- We sang "Happy Birthday" to Black Six, who then threatened to ban everyone who sung
- Black Six slapped Takuma's hat off of his head, sending the light clip that was on it shattering into its constituent parts. While we were able to piece it back together, I'm not sure if anyone ever got it to work
- After public hours, we planned a last-minute vendor raid, but Architect and I didn't run into anything interesting on sale
- Kothra and Waffles both made their appearance known via laggy and blurry videocalls
- Malignus showed up again today and showed everyone his technique for attaching Kopaka Mata's shield to his feet
- Xaeraz cobbled together a Toxic Waste Bunny and walked the Dinosaur
- Cholie and I barked at each other
- InnerRayg remarked that our dancing should supply the front page for at least five days
- We looked at pictures on Zatth's iPad, watched videos from last year's 'Fair, and made dumb jokes and puns
- Takuma's cousin won a door prize at the closing ceremonies
- Afterwards, Brickeens, Takuma, his cousin, Avohkah Tamer, Bionicle Raptor, Zatth, Disky, Spink, Sisen, and I went out to eat dinner, where much hilarity ensued - specifically, pun zingers in the conversation between Zatth and me.
- My mom took a group shot of us all, but half of Spink's head was behind Sisen, so another picture was taken. Everyone looked strange, so a third attempt was made ... but everyone turned out blurry. After Sisen messed with the camera, we finally got a good group picture and all was right with the world again
- Zatth, after having a lunch of Skittles and a second lunch of nachos, was out of money because his parents didn't want him to squander it at BrickFair. He ended up eating a side of macaroni and cheese from someone else's plate
- A few set designers who did a BrickFair seminar were eating at the same place we were, so they came over and said hi
- Unfortunately I had to go so I missed whatever hilarity is going on in Takuma's hotel room as I type this, but I have to get up early tomorrow morning so Brickeens, Zatth, and I can tour Washington
I miss BrickFair already - but hey, it's only 361 more days until it all happens again.
There are 12 days to go.
That's 288 hours.
Or 17,280 minutes.
Or 1,036,800 seconds.
He's the lord of all strangeness. - Ignika: Nerd of Life
How awesome is Sumiki on a scale of 1 to 10? - Waffles
42. - Black Six
[He's] the king of wierd, the prince of practicality, the duke of durr! - Daiker
Sumiki is magic. - Cholie
Sumiki says, "Do I creeeeeeep you out?" Yes, he does. - Waffles
Sumiki is a nub. He's cool, but he's still a nub. - Ran Yakumo
"What is a Sumiki?" You may ask. But the answer to that is still unknown, even to the Sumiki itself. - Daiker
Ah, Sumiki. - Electric Turahk
LISTEN TO SUMIKI - Cholie
Sumiki is best snickerdoodle. - Takuma Nuva
BZPower = Sumiki + McSmeag + B6. And Hahli Husky. - Vorex
What's a Sumi? Does it taste good? - Janus
I would have thought Sumiki wanted to reincarnate as a farm animal. - Kraggh
EAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH - Kakaru
Sumiki: the horse_ebooks of bzp - VampireBohrok
Everything relates to Sumiki. No really, everything. - Daiker
He's in worse mental condition than I thought. - Obsessionist
I'm just wondering why I'm looking at some cat dancing ... I suppose the answer would simply be "Sumiki." - Brickeens
I was like a beast, screaming through the mind of Sumiki at the speed of sound. I.. I wasn't strong enough to stop myself. What I saw was the end of infinity, through which one can see the beginning of time, and I will never be the same. - Portalfig
I imagine the 13th Doctor will be rather like Sumiki, at the rate we're going. - rahkshi guurahk
I was quite sure Sumiki had another set of arms stashed somewhere. - Bfahome
Every week, I post a new "Tuesday Tablescrap", a small MOC not worthy of a topic, but something to post and inspire me to build more.

If you learn one thing in life, learn this:
You should never, ever question why demons would possess a soda.
just a heads up - Cthulhu would probably eradicate mankind before bringing back Bionicle
so yeah, all I'm saying is, please think twice about this okay
nothing gets democracy flowing like erratic capitalizatION
[the NSA] couldn't say no when I offered them an ostrich farm in exchange
Sumiki -- nice try but we all know Toa Mata Nui stuffs its bra
have we mentioned hats
Shhh, I'm trying to focus on the negative to justify my dislike of history.
Also a long line of really great hats.
You have a great understanding of history, but don't forget, war, murder and other poor decisions are also huge characteristics.
To be fair, I am the one responsible for the invention of Mafia in the 1320s by seventeen bored italians locked in a mine shaft.
It's a long story.
